tape play out. let's watch. >> hello, everybody. you have been so helpful. we did well, the election came out really well. next time we'll triple quadruple it. this is african-american history month. this is our little get together. a few notes during this month we honor the tremendous history of the african-americans throughout our country. throughout the world when you really think about it, right? this is one of unimaginable hard work and faith in america. i've gotten a real glimpse during the campaign. i went with ben to a lot of places that i wasn't familiar
with. i want to thank ben carson heading up hud. that's a big job and a job that is not only housing, it is mind and spirit, right, ben? you understand that. no body is going to be better than ben. last month we celebrated the life of martin luther king junior whose incredible example in unique in american history. you read about dr. martin luther king a week ago when somebody said i took the statue out of my office. it turned out that that was fake news. [laughter] it is one of the favorite things in the -- we have some good ones. we have lincoln, jefferson and dr. martin luther king and we have -- but they said the statue, the bust of dr. martin luther king was taken out of the office. and it was never even touched. so i think it was a disgrace
but that's the way the press is, very unfortunate. i'm proud we have a museum on the national mall where people can learn about reverend king and so many other things, frederic douglas is an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and being recognized more and more i notice. harriet tubman, rosa parks and millions more black americans who made america what it is today. i'm proud to honor this heritage and we'll be honoring it more and more. folks at the table in almost all cases have been great friends and supporters and daryl, i met daryl when he was defending me on television. [laughter] and the people that were on the other side of the argument didn't have a chance, right? and paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile cnn community. [laughter] all by himself. seven people and paris. i'll take paris over the seven.
but i don't watch cnn so i don't get to see you as much. [laughter] i don't like watching fake news. but fox has treated me very nice wherever fox is, thank you. we'll need better schools and we need them soon. we need more jobs, we need better wages. a lot better wages. we will work very hard in the inner city. ben will be doing that quickly. it's one of his big things that he is looking at. we need safer communities and we'll do that with law enforcement and we'll make it safe. we're going to make it much better than it is now. right now it's terrible. i saw you talking about it the other night, paris on something else that was -- you did a fantastic job the other night on a very unrelated show. i'm ready to do my part. i'm ready to do my part and i will say this, we'll work together. this is a great group. this is a group that has been so special to me. you really helped me a lot.
if you remember i wasn't going
to do well with the from african-american community. after they heard me speaking and talking about the inner city and other things we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who had run in the past years. and now we'll take that to new levels. i want
to thank my television star over here. she have is a very nice person. i don't want to destroy her reputation. she is a very good person and she has been helpful right from the beginning of the campaign and i appreciate it. very special. and so i want to thank everybody for being here. could we maybe just go around the room and introduce ourselves and the press can stay for that and i'm sure they have no questions about last night because it was such a good launch. we have a fantastic hopefully new justice of the supreme court and hopefully he will approved very quickly. he is outstanding in every way.
academically he has done almost as well as you did, daryl, in college.
